June 9, 1914: Honus Wagner of the Pirates becomes the second member of the 3,000 hit club when he doubles in the ninth inning off Philadelphia's Erskine Mayer.
Mayer went on to win 21 games in 1914. This made Wagner the only man to get his 3,000th hit against a pitcher who won 20 games that season.
Wagner won eight batting titles, tied for the most in National League history with Tony Gwynn. He also led the league in slugging six times, and in stolen bases five times. Wagner, who had a .328 batting average in 21 seasons, is considered by many to be one of the greatest players of the dead-ball era and perhaps the greatest shortstop of all-time.
Cap Anson was the first to reach 3,000 hits. Nap Lajoie joined them three months after Wagner.
